Laughing releases “happy chemicals” into the body. By letting laughter into every part of our body and our mind, we’re chemically altering our physical state and immediately into the here and now mentally.
Today, if you’re feeling less than 100%, take the adage of “laughter being the best medicine” literally. Try a little laugh therapy (also called laughing meditation or laughter yoga) The techniques simply involves inhaling deeply, then exhaling while laughing. Really want to go out on a limb? Try to experience the freedom of spontaneous laughter. Just laugh. No jokes, just laugh out of nowhere, like children do! One study on the subject, stated children laugh about 400 to 500 times a day, while an adult may laugh 15 times a day. Why do kids get to laugh, “just cause,” but adults determine that it’s not ok?
